Fiber Optics

Fiber optics (optical fiber), comprising thin strands of glass, is the channel used to transmit data, images, and voice in the form of a beam of light that pulse through tiny, transparent fibers. Earlier, telecommunications technology used copper wire for transmitting voice signals.Because the stands...

Trends in information and communication technology are creating great opportunities for engineers with the skills to work as optical network engineers. The growing demand for bandwidth continues to push optics into many realms of communication networks. Optical networking now dominates global communication networks, terrestrial long-distance...
